My 1st Grandchild has attended NBE for 2 years now and his younger twin siblings will be entering Kindergarten in August. They are very excited because their big brother has shared so many wonderful things with them creating much excitement for them in the learning arena. We LOVE NBE for its enthusiasm and its love, concern, and caring attitude for the students. The Teachers are true mentors and are very creative in teaching and helping the children develop traditional character traits. We are proud that NBE maintains an A status. Children who are academically exceptional have the opportunity to excel beyond their borders with creative means to enhance themselves even further. We love the fact that NBE is always neat, clean, and practices manners in the classroom. We also love that the school is NOT chaotic, but exhibits and requires quiet behavior of the students. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my views.

We have had a great experience at NBE. Our child loved attending second grade at this school. The teacher was young, enthusiastic, kind, professional, and was always present. The classroom was in a portable but the teacher kept it clean and bright with colorful posters. We are excited to move up with the same teacher to third grade. Our experience has been that the teachers are easy to contact and respond quickly to parent emails or phone calls. I highly recommend this school at this point!

If you are lucky enough to be in district here, no worries. This will be the end of a seven-year run at NBE for me, I am so going to miss my neat, orderly, clean school with a good run for us with great teachers. I have a junior in high school, too, occasionally you get a teacher that does not fit well with your child. NBE has been the best.

My son attended for 3 yrs at NBE - the first two were good as his teacher was wonderful and caring. his last year (2010 - 2011)- well let's just say, i gritted my teeth and got him through. I had meeting with Principal Reese 3 times requesting feedback form his teacher in regards to behavior, things they are learning in class, etc as he requires follow up at home as well and still had no feedback from teacher that I was looking for. I tired to schedule to come in for volunteer but they always wanted me to go to another grade level and not in his classroom, made me a bit uneasy. I requested another with the teacher present and then decided not to for fear of repricutions to my son. Lack of follow though and 'direct orders' to communicate with me and nothing ever done about it. the staff overall is very good and will go out of their way to help, however the leadership falls very short.

I have been nothing but happy with New Berlin Elementary School! After moving here from south florida I realized how far behind my child would be here, the curriculum is excellent and they strive for success. My son's teacher is more than willing to spend the time getting my husband and I informed and invloved. He calls weekly with Austin's progress and lends out his learning tools/activites to help Austin in any way possible. The building is always clean and neat and the front office staff is friendly and warm. Mr. Blakeman has worked amazingly with my son in kindergarten. Very proud of his success and his school!

My son is finishing up his Kindergarten year at New Berlin and I have to say that his teachers Mr. Blakeman & Ms. Eshleman are AWESOME. So happy that my son's first school year exeperience went well, he truly has WONDERFUL TEACHERS that truly care for EACH of their students. They always kept us informed on how our son was doing in class and always took the time to answer all our questions. All the Staff members are great.

It's an awesome atmosphere where students and parents alike are treated with respect and dignity. The students are encouraged to strive for success, they are not allowed to offer excuses and helped to be the best they can be as a contributing member of our society.

My family and I moved to Florida and were worried about placing our children in Duval schools. But the welcome from the teachers and guidance has been most helpful. Security at the school is top notch and classrooms neat and clean well organized. Great Job to the staff and pta parents.

New Berlin is a newer school so I was a little nervous when I sent my son there but they function like they've been around for years. The principal is so approachable and seems to know all the children by name, even the new ones. Keep up the great work New Berlin staff!

My son has attended New Berlin Elementary for the past two years and I have nothing but good things to say, he loves his teachers, the staff, the estracurricular activities. As a fifth grader, I couldn't be happier with the help he is getting with the transition from elementary to middle school. Keep up the good work!

I have been with one child or another since the very first day this school opened the last three years and it is fantastic. I love it, love it, love it. You're lucky if you have a child that attends here.

the principal and staff at New Berlin provide a nurturing, learning experience for all students where they can learn and flourish. I have been most pleased with the focus on academics at the school, and have been also impressed with the intense parental involvement that drives New Berlin. There is an active PTA that coordinates wonderful events and supports the learning goals for the students. I highly recommend New Berlin and would definitely call it a great school!

The children come first at this school. I have a child who attends NBE. I'm also part of the staff. Having had the opportunity for my child to attend and for me to work there, I would have to say it is a wonderful school. The kids are valued and encouraged to achieve. If a problem should arise, the educational staff are quick to persue the issue and follow proper district protocal when dealing with the well being of a child. They are constantly working towards excellence.

I have two children that started at New Berlin in January. We only experienced half of a school year at the school, but in that short period we were extremely pleased with Mrs. K. Dobson and Mrs. Williams. New Berlin should be very proud to have these teachers represent their school.

My grandchildren go to New Berlin Elementary School. I was so impressed and happy when the school year started. Now, I have a different opinion. My grandson was the victim of bullying both on his bus and in his neighborhood. My daughter-in-law has met with school officials and no one has followed through with seeing that he, a third grader, is protected from a 12 year old bully. I am so hurt and disappointed in the school's lack of concern for my grandson's safety!

My child attended the special needs pre-school available for various children with disabilities. We were horrified to learn that these children were not given the funding they need and deserve. The poor teacher is given 15 special needs kids with one classroom helper (who is also assigned other tasks throughout the day so is often out of the room) and all of these kids need more attention than the average student, so she was pretty much 'babysitting' all day instead of actually being able to teach anything with kids going in every direction all of the time. When special situations came up with children, the principal was quick to blow the concerned parents off as if she had no compassion or respect for special needs kids. Shame on you! We went private this year.

First year of operation was my son's 1st. grade class, This school has a tremendous energy by both faculty & students and I see this facility acheiving top ranks in it's second year of operation. Simply cannot compare to the Montesori school my son attended in West Palm Beach. He is a happier child and very inquisitive about things he has learned at school.

My son was in 4th grade last year and had a wonderful set of teachers. He is now on the Patrol for the 2007/2008 school year and is so excited to start school. This school was very much needed in our area and it was definatley worth the wait for all of us. Thank You NBE

My daughter attended first grade at New Berlin Ele. She did very well and was challenged throughout the year. The teacher was wonderful to the students even with handling my daughters 'chatty' nature. The staff at the school was very helpfull and professional. The only problem that we encountered with the school is that being a brand new school there was a lack of day care services linked to the school. There were only 2 that provided bussing to the school from before and after programs and they filled up fast, as did the schools before and after program.
